5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Decision I've Ever Made - Frederick, MD

I finally decided to have my breasts done and I wish I wouldn't have waited so long. They look great, feel great and I feel so much better about myself. Dr. Kress's staff is excellent! They went above and beyond what a normal staff would do. I would recommend Dr. Kress to any of my family and friends!

5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants

30 Year Old Mom of Three-going with Sientra 405cc - Frederick, MD

Dr. Kress was great during my consultation. He answered all of my questions and explained things really well. He was also very kind the day of my surgery and made me feel at ease about it. His staff is also amazing! They are so sweet and helpful. I received a call the evening of my surgery from CJ just to make sure I was feeling ok and to let me know I could call her cell phone for anything I might need. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kress.

37 Y/o, 5'4", 205lbs, 1three Y/o Son, Ready to Feel Like Me Again:) Fredrick, MD

Dr. Kress and his staff ( Tammy, charity, and Dorry) are amazing. I had a consult with two different plastic surgeons (one at UVA, Charlottesville, VA and Dr. Kress) and felt that Dr kress understood what i was looking for and had more than enough experience and expertise to provide me with great results. I have called the office many times with questions and each time they are so helpful and patience with easing all my worries and concerns. I love the fact that when i ask Dr. Kress a question he backs up his answers with facts/statistic. i really appreciate this since im a very analytical person. Dr. Kress and his staff made me feel like i was one of the family from the moment i walked into their office. After my first consult with Dr. Kress i knew he would be my surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty: 1 Yr My Journey. Frederick, MD

Dr. Kress has such a gentle bedside manner. He is professional, a good listener, caring, and easy to talk to. Soft spoken and sure of himself. I would highly reccommend him to anyone. I love going into the office and talking to CJ and Charity. They are always happy to see you and make you feel welcome. They do everything they can to accomodate your needs. When I had questions or concerns after my surgery, and needed to see Dr. Kress, they would always manage to get me in that day.

23 Y/o Breast Augmentation - Frederick, MD

Dr Kress was amazing. He answered all of my questions and was sure to check on me,twice, after the procedure while still waking up. I had a capsular contracture to the right breast about 6 months post op which never fully softened. I am in process now of researching explantation surgery. I had 300cc cohesive gel implants placed making me a 36 DD, but soon realized that large is not always best...
